I’ve seen enough people now calling this a waste of Retro’s talents to believe this is happening now.

I think it works as an idea. Racing in flight with Arwing combat sounds something that could be abit different and exciting.

Sounds gooseberry fool but then if it's true, I trust retro to deliver.

Shouldn’t this be a new thread?

It’s a bloody dumb rumour, unless it turns out to be true. It seems like such obvious fake rumour bait, two franchises people have been clamering for Nintendo to do something good with and which are linked by fan theories anyway.

Retro are ludicrously talented but I the idea of that doesn’t sound particularly interesting to me. I hope it’s not true and I very much doubt it is.

Seems like a stupid idea to me. Why amalgamate 2 games into 1.

They said the same when it was announced they were working on Donkey Kong.

Retro have only ever made one truly great game. (Two if you count NBA Jam when the same people were Iguana Entertainment.)

Sounds awful, but then so did Mario & Rabbids, and look how that turned out.
Would still much rather have a proper F-Zero game and a proper Starfox game, assuming this is true, but I guess we'll see.

That's what I mean-it's the standard process for a new Retro game

Some interesting tidbits coming out in the wake of the Retro news. firstly, Kotaku and Game Informer have also backed up the rumours so it seems it’s legit

Secondly, Game Informer mentioned they heard Retro’s project was struggling, Jason from Kotaku has commented to say this is a different project to Star Fox which means Retro are working on more than 1 game but the struggling project may have been cancelled

Retro have never made a bad game to be fair, I’m sure whatever Star Fox Grand Prix is it will be great.

Classics or new titles, time to get hyped regardless
